Preemptive Attack not Monopoly of U.S., Warns Kim Il Chol

Pyongyang, April 8 (KCNA) -- A preemptive attack is not monopoly of the U.S. and the DPRK will never sit idle till it is exposed to a preemptive attack of the U.S., warned Vice Marshal of the Korean People's Army Kim Il Chol, member of the DPRK National Defence Commission and minister of the People's Armed Forces. This warning came from his report at a national meeting held at the April 25 House of Culture here on Saturday to mark the 13th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's election as NDC chairman.
The situation is growing tenser and more acute on the Korean Peninsula than ever before due to the U.S. ever-more undisguised hostile policy toward the DPRK and its reckless military provocations, he said, and continued:
The U.S. is now talking about the six-party talks but in fact, it is zealously inciting hostility toward the DPRK while floating all sorts of sheer fictions, utterly indifferent to the talks. It is only watching for every chance to attack the DPRK while staging large-scale war exercises after listing it as a target of "preemptive attack." It is the traditional combat method of the DPRK to directly counter the pressure and threat of aggression from the enemies, without yielding to them. The army and people of the DPRK will closely follow the every move of the U.S. with high revolutionary vigilance. Should the U.S. ignite a war of aggression at any cost, they will mobilize their politico-ideological might and military potentials built up generation after generation under the leadership of the great illustrious Songun commander and mercilessly wipe out the enemies and thus victoriously conclude the stand-off with the U.S.
